RailAdvent celebrates 1,000,000 page views with our biggest competition yet

2018 has been a fantastic year for us here at RailAdvent, we have seen our biggest growth in views and visitor numbers and had many positive comments on the work we do.

During August we passed 1,000,000 page views, for the year to date.

The rapid growth of the RailAdvent website makes us one of the fastest growing sites for railway news and information in the UK. We are well on target to become the number 1 source both online and ahead of railway magazines.

As well as railway news, we have launched our online shop and we have our events calendar and our new community pages at www.locostop.co.uk. You can now get notifications for some of our news articles as well as even getting the headlines on your Amazon Alexa device.

So to help celebrate with our readers and say thank you for your continued support, we have decided to hold a competition with our biggest prize list ever!

  1. Travelled on Royal Scot at Kwvr
    It was in super condition, day was fine although Northern Rail let many passengers down by being too late to drop them off
    We had a trackside fire caused by the weather temperature being 80 degrees
    The engine has been looked after and the day made an elderly couple very happy
